Editorial Reviews

The incredible adventures of the international team of heroes known as G.I. JOE continue! Together they defend the globe against Cobra, a ruthless organization led by Serpentor and the recently rejuvenated Cobra Commander, who are both determined to conquer the world by any means necessary.

In 1989 a popular second G.I. JOE animated series was created and helped revive the franchise by introducing fans to new G.I. JOE and Cobra troops alike! Now you can experience the adventures of that second series from the beginning, including the fan-favorite miniseries that started it all: Operation Dragonfire!

Customer Reviews

To those of us who grew up in the late 80s and 90s, this series is wonderful.
Amazon Customer
The series starts out with the 5 part miniseries titled Operation Dragonfire which I feel is some of the best episodes of the series made.
HULKAMANIAC
The video and audio mix is quality and much better than the original broadcasts as you might expect.

This set is a must have for any G.I. Joe fan. I know there are a lot of people who did not like this series, but I feel that it does have quite a few good qualities. There are quite a few characters that came from this series that have gone to be fan favorites like the battle armor Cobra Commander, Python Patrol, Slaughters Mauraders, and many more. The series has more Sgt. Slaughter which also is an added bonus to the show. The series starts out with the 5 part miniseries titled Operation Dragonfire which I feel is some of the best episodes of the series made. I know that the quality of the animation and stories are not as good as the Sunbow series and this series did try to sell the toys more to you but it is still fun to watch. I hope that the second season is released so I can then have all of the classic 80's G.I. Joe cartoons on dvd. I think if you are a true G.I. joe fan you will be happy with this set. I really appreciate Shout Factory realeasing this set on to dvd.

"G.I. Joe - A Real American Hero" is literally the classic animated series that became an iconic series for thousands of fans who loyally collected the many awesome merchandise from Hasbro and continues to be a popular toy line today.

Although, the series was released in 1984, the series has spawned several of animated series, CG films, video games and in 2009, a live action film (with a second one planned for release in the summer of 2012).

But like other children's action animated series, not many series tend to last long. For the original "G.I. Joe - A Real American Hero", the first animated series would last from 1983-1986.

But because Hasbro has been dedicated to their toy line up, and with new generation of children, in 1989, "G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero" was revived in 1989. This time around, in order to cut production costs, Hasbro dropped Sunbow for DiC and due to budgetary issues, DiC would focus on the new characters during this time period. A five episode mini-series titled "Operation Dragonfire" was released in 1989, and in 1990, a total of 19 episodes were created for the first season.

And now, both the mini-series and the first season will be released on DVD for the first time courtesy of SHOUT! FACTORY in Jan. 2012.

The first season would focus on Hawk as the G.I. Joe commander, Sgt. Slaughter as the head of G.I. Joe and Captain Grid-Iron as the field commander. While the original cast of Duke, Snake Eyes and Scarlett were not seen in this season, focus was primarily on the newer character until season two which would eventually feature the return of Duke and also a more deeper storyline. For Cobra, while Serpentor and Destro were seen as the two major leaders during the 1989

The DiC release of "G.I.

For starters, yes, this series is by far the inferior to the Sunbow series and should not be anyone's FIRST introduction into the battle between GI Joe and Cobra. Still, this stuff is great for completists and I thank Shout! Factory for allowing us to complete the series. Sgt. Slaughter, General Hawk, and Cobra Commander make their triumphant returns (including their voice actors) as do Destro, Baroness, and Zarana (along with Serpentor [sans the pathetic utterances of "This I Command!"] for the duration of "Operation Dragonfire"). This leaves plenty of room for a new batch of heroes and enemies to love (sometimes pronounced "loathe.")

However, DIC's taking over of the "GI Joe" project following the animated movie presented the downfall of two separate mainstays in 80s animation: one animated adventure, the other the animation company:

-GI Joe, a "REAL AMERICAN" Hero was repronounced to "INTERNATIONAL hero" in the title tracks to "Operation: Dragonfire." (PC idiocy at its most obnoxious and in-your-face). Furthermore, Cobra is reduced to a "ruthless" enemy (and, later, what I swear sounds like "worthless terrorist organization"). Anyone whose remotely familiar with the GI Joe story arc knows that they mean "COBRA" (even Destro's Iron Grenadiers and the now-absent Zartan's Dreadnoks worked beneath the banner of Cobra).

-DIC Enterprises was responsible for such gems as "Inspector Gadget," "M.A.S.K.", "Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors," and "C.O.P.S" throughout the 80s, thereby establishing themselves as a respectable animation studio. With "GI Joe" Series 2, DIC enterprises began what lots of fans of both the Joes and DIC animation seem to think is the company's long downfall.

I digress.

I found the picture quality to be just fine, no problems with the picture what-so-ever. It would've been nice if some extra's were included, as was done with the Sunbow GI Joe DVD sets. The storylines are aimed at a younger audience than the Sunbow shows. The colors are so "90's"; I can't help but smile when I see yellow and pink on militaristic vehichles. I'm looking forward to Season 2 of this series, as it seems to have a better combination of "new" Joes and established Joes such as Snake-Eyes and Duke.

For those who remember, or have watched the original G.I. Joe series, this will be a real let down. The animation is much worse, the voice talents seem to not match the characters, and few of the Joes from the original series are included. The Joes that have resurfaced have major differences in appearance, attitude, and voice (Dusty, Stalker, Low Light, Hawk). Also, the plots or story themes are a bit more juvenile. Not that the original series didn't have it's moments of fantasy, however Series 2 takes it to a whole new level.

With all of this, it is still G.I. Joe, and true fans will at least want to watch just for the sake of it being a part of Joe history...for better or worse.
